Kriesel gives powerful testimony at EDC banquet
John Kriesel, one of Minnesota's best-known veterans and former Minnesota House representative, was the keynote speaker at the St. Croix County Economic Development Corporation Awards Banquet Thursday at R&D Banquet Hall in New Richmond.
A double leg amputee with prosthetic legs, Kriesel now lives in Cottage Grove, Minn., and said he considers himself to be lucky.
"I got a second chance," Kriesel said. "Don't feel sorry for me."
